Antique 3 Tiered Display Table For A Wedding

Earlier this year I was asked if I would be willing to make over a few pieces of furniture that will be props for an outdoor wedding in August.

I am honoured to have been asked to take on the next few projects that will be part of such an important day in someone’s life.  They will become a piece of someone’s “Story”…

This 3 tiered (what I think may have been a plant stand at one time) display table was originally a dark finish.  It’s finish was flawless.  Very sturdy and pretty as it was, I was asked if I could please paint it and brighten it up so it could be used in the wedding as a dessert stand.  There will be many pastries, cupcakes and dainties for the reception placed on it.

Because the wedding is outdoor country shabby, I gave it 2 coats of MMS Linen Milk Paint and distressed it slightly.  The paint only chipped in a few spots which I think was just perfect for the piece.  I finished it with a touch of antiquing wax and then followed with 2 more coats of clear wax. It is so smooth and looks beautiful!

So romantic …

    Great job. It’s really a beautiful piece. I love the detail on the legs and edges. I think after the wedding this would be beautiful in a dressing room or corner of a bedroom to hold jewelry and accessories too.

    • Thank you Becky! I agree, it would be perfect for accessories and displaying them. It could be used in so many areas of a home for many things . I hope you’re having a good day!

  2. The table is beautiful. I can imagine their wedding is going to be so pretty and unique. They’ll be able to enjoy that table for many years to come and have great memories of their wedding day when they look at it.

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
